“Since the beginning of this year, the growth of international economy and trade has slowed down, and the external environment has become more complicated and severe. In the first three quarters of this year, China’s foreign trade import and export continued to grow and its structure continued to be optimized.” Li Kuiwen, spokesman of the General Administration of Customs and director of the Statistics and Analysis Department, said at a press conference of the State New Office.

Stable growth and strong resilience Since this year, the growth of the world economy has slowed down and trade protectionism continues to heat up, but China’s foreign trade has maintained a strong resilience. 7.01 trillion yuan, 7.66 trillion yuan, 8.24 trillion yuan … in the first three quarters, the overall foreign trade operation was stable, and the import and export scale showed a trend of increasing quarter by quarter.

According to the latest data released by WTO, from January to July this year, China’s import and export growth rate was still higher than that of Germany, Japan, South Korea and other countries. China still maintained its position as the world’s largest country in goods trade, accounting for 0.1 percentage point higher than that of the same period last year.

Li Kui Wen told reporters that the factors supporting the smooth operation of China’s foreign trade in the first three quarters of this year are mainly three aspects:

First, the steady operation of the domestic economy has provided strong support for China to cope with external risks and realize the continuous growth of foreign trade. Since the beginning of this year, China’s economic operation has been generally stable, structural adjustment has been steadily advancing, and reform and opening-up have been comprehensively deepened.

Second, the policy effect will continue to be released. Since last year, China has raised the export tax rebate rate of some products twice, successively issued a series of independent tariff reduction policies, and successively lowered the value-added tax rate on import links twice. This series of measures has effectively stimulated the vitality of market players. In the first three quarters of this year, China’s imports of consumer goods increased by 15.3%. The number of enterprises with import and export records reached 464,000, up 5.9% year on year. The business environment has been continuously optimized and the level of trade facilitation has been greatly improved. In the first three quarters, the overall customs clearance time for China’s imports and exports has been shortened by 56.4% and 64.7% respectively compared with 2017.

Third, market diversification has achieved remarkable results. Since this year, China has launched a series of major measures to open up to the outside world, promoting a new round of high-level opening up to the outside world, accelerating the formation of a new situation of opening up to the outside world, and providing confidence and confidence for enterprises to actively explore new markets and optimize the global market layout. With the steady progress of the construction of “the belt and road initiative”, China’s economic and trade cooperation with the countries along the line is closer and trade exchanges are more active. In the first three quarters of this year, China’s total import and export value to countries along the “the belt and road initiative” was 6.65 trillion yuan, up 9.5% year on year, 6.7 percentage points higher than the overall growth rate of China’s foreign trade in the same period, accounting for 29% of China’s total import and export value in the same period, up 1.8 percentage points from the same period last year and 4 percentage points higher than the year when the “the belt and road initiative” initiative was put forward in 2013. In the first three quarters of this year, the trade volume between China and Africa increased by 7.5% year on year, 4.7 percentage points higher than the overall growth rate of foreign trade.

The trend of improving quality during stabilization is obvious.

The leading role of general trade is more obvious. The leading role of private enterprises is more prominent. The pattern of regional foreign trade has been more optimized. The development of special customs supervision areas is faster. The structure of import and export commodities has been further optimized … While the scale is continuously expanding, China’s foreign trade has also made positive progress in high-quality development, with a clear trend of improving quality while maintaining stability.

Li Kui Wen specifically analyzed the five highlights of improving quality in China’s foreign trade stability:

In the first three quarters, the import and export of China’s general trade pattern increased by 4.8%, 2 percentage points higher than the overall growth rate of foreign trade, accounting for 59.5% of China’s total foreign trade value, with the proportion rising by 1.1 percentage points. General trade mode has a long domestic industrial chain for import and export, which can better reflect the independence of China’s foreign trade.

Under the favorable policies of tax reduction and fee reduction, private enterprises have shown stronger vitality and have become the main force driving the growth of China’s foreign trade. In the first three quarters, the import and export of China’s private enterprises increased by 10.4%, 7.6 percentage points higher than the overall growth rate of foreign trade, accounting for 42.3% of China’s total foreign trade value, with the proportion rising by 2.9 percentage points. Among them, exports increased by 13%, accounting for more than half of China’s export value.

Since this year, China’s regional strategy has been steadily implemented. Major strategies such as the coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, the development of the Yangtze River Economic Belt, the high-quality development of the integration of the Yangtze River Delta, the construction of Guangdong, Hong Kong, Macao and the Great Bay Area, and the overall deepening of the reform in Hainan have been advanced in depth. Ecological protection and high-quality development in the Yellow River Basin have also become major national strategies, greatly promoting the coordinated development of China’s foreign trade. In the first three quarters, the import and export of the central and western regions increased by 12.4% and 11.8% respectively, accounting for 0.6% and 0.7% of China’s foreign trade respectively.

The special customs supervision area is the forefront of China’s opening to the outside world. At the beginning of this year, the State Council issued a number of opinions to promote the high-level opening and high-quality development of the comprehensive bonded area, which effectively promoted the development of the comprehensive bonded area. In the first three quarters, the import and export of the comprehensive bonded area increased by 12.9%, accounting for 0.7% of China’s foreign trade.

A series of policies to form a strong domestic market have been implemented and the potential for domestic demand has been continuously released, providing endogenous impetus for China to actively expand imports and optimize the structure of imported commodities. In the first three quarters, imports of consumer goods for people’s livelihood grew rapidly. At the same time, the domestic supply-side structural reform continued to push forward, with positive progress in industrial upgrading, promoting the continuous optimization of China’s export commodity structure.

The development trend of China’s foreign trade will not change.

The OECD expects world economic growth to fall to its lowest level in a decade this year. The latest WTO report continues to lower the growth rate of global trade in goods, predicting a growth of only 1.2% in 2019, 1.8 percentage points lower than the 3% in 2018 and lower than the global economic growth expectation.

“The external environment facing China’s foreign trade development in the future is still complex and grim, with more unstable and uncertain factors. However, China’s foreign trade development is resilient, and the general trend of optimizing foreign trade structure and accelerating power conversion has not changed. Foreign trade will continue to maintain a generally stable and steady development throughout the year.” Li Kuiwen said in response to a reporter’s question.

Customs statistics show that the total value of Sino-US bilateral foreign trade in the first three quarters of this year was 2.75 trillion yuan, down 10.3% year on year.

  • Foreign trade worries: because I offered to pay for the sample freight, the customer attacked me personally

    Foreign trade salesmen will contact with all kinds of customers every day. There are many different things in the world. Customers from all over the world are different. Some customers are of high quality, while others make people speechless.What I want to share today is very sad, because I proposed that the freight of the sample should be paid by the customer, which led the customer to attack me personally. Such a thing is really impolite. Although doing foreign trade for many years, there are very few customers who openly carry out personal attacks and at most secretly scold them in their hearts. . .In particular, a few hundred dollars of sample freight can reflect such a strong reaction, which is quite speechless. Listen to me slowly. Samples will be requested immediately after the first reply. It can be said that this customer has the typical characteristic of an insincere customer: in the first letter of reply, he directly asked for samples. The day after I sent the letter, I received a reply from customer j: We are very interested….

  • 99% of foreign trade newcomers are following the “Order Death Book”

    Foreign trade seems simple, but in fact it is extremely complicated. It is not as easy as some new people think. In other words, you can string up the whole foreign trade process with a few simple paragraphs or a hand drawing to form the overall framework of the foreign trade business, but you can hardly finish or learn all the details of all links in very little time, and each link in foreign trade is very important, closely linked and linked. Just like some people ask me: how does lingying ( linkedin ) play? How does Google develop its customers? Believe me, it’s really not that I don’t want to spend a few minutes telling you, but that I don’t have so much free time to explain to you one by one, because your problems will go on endlessly, one by one. For example, I told you LinkedIn is one of the SNS battlefields. You need to improve information, add contacts, publish daily updates, publish articles, publish company pages, publish product pages and other ways to actively or passively…

    Why does everyone like to send letters by mail? In the foreign trade industry, from the time when mail marketing was first adopted to many years now, foreign trade mail opening has always been something that foreign trade salesmen cannot get around. Even today, in all major forums and foreign trade platforms, foreign trade mail opening is still a key word with very high search rate and reading rate. 1.

  • What if the foreign trade bill of lading is lost? How to solve and deal with it?

    A bill of lading is a document that proves that the contract of carriage of goods by sea and the goods have been received or loaded by the carrier, as well as the carrier’s proof to deliver the goods. Since goods can only be extracted by bill of lading, bill of lading is of great significance in international trade, especially under FOB and CFR conditions, and is considered as the representative and symbol of goods. However, because only one set of bills of lading can be issued for one bill of lading, and the bills of lading are negotiable documents at the same time, the loss of the bills of lading will have a great impact on the development of foreign trade business, which may lead to the seller unable to settle the foreign exchange and the buyer unable to take delivery of the goods. With the continuous growth of China’s import and export trade, this kind of loss has occurred frequently in foreign trade companies recently. How should we deal with the loss of the bill of lading? There…

  • Who are suitable for foreign trade

    Many people like to ask the old foreign trade when they are not in the trade. Is foreign trade good? Can I do a good job in foreign trade like this? Did you start from scratch when you changed industries? What if you didn’t choose your product at first? How to deal with unscrupulous local bosses? All questions can be answered in one sentence: true love is invincible! I have always felt that, apart from luck, a successful person in the secular sense should have two characteristics, good at thinking and good at acting.People who are good at thinking have definite goals and will pave the way for themselves in advance, and they know what they like. People who are good at action will implement it immediately when they have a direction. Execution is the productive force. I am not a major related to foreign trade. With my love for foreign trade, I have stepped into the door of foreign trade. The reason why I have lived to this day and am still living well is mainly because the “direction”…

  • Perfect! This foreign trade export tax refund process will definitely be used if you study early

    Some small partners strongly demand to see the foreign trade export tax rebate process, then let’s meet today 1. Why is there an export tax rebate? The state will return the value-added tax and consumption tax actually undertaken in the domestic production and circulation links before exporting the exported goods to the exporting enterprises after the goods are declared for export, so that the exported goods can enter the international market at a price excluding tax and avoid international double taxation. Because foreign countries will levy value-added tax and customs duties on the goods we sold in the past, the tax burden on our exports will be zero, so that even if foreigners levy a tax, we can compete fairly with foreign goods. 2. foreign trade enterprises export tax rebate process Similarly, for export, production enterprises should go through the process of exemption, credit and refund, while foreign trade enterprises are relatively simple. Generally, export is exempt from sales tax and input tax is refunded. There are also those who are exempt from tax, such as small-scale taxpayers who have…

  • Foreign Trade Sharing-How Foreign Traders Work Efficiently

    Foreign Trade Sharing-How Foreign Traders Work Efficiently Let’s talk about the time allocation in general, starting with a foreign trade salesman entering the office in the morning (making tea and tidying up the table) First, open the web page to check the exchange rate situation, generally referring to BOC or the central bank. As a foreign trade salesman, it is necessary to know the trend of exchange rate in time. In addition, I usually have to look at the price trend of domestic raw materials. Generally, it can be completed in ten minutes at most. Second, open the mail client and then open the customer tracking table to see which customers have not contacted for some time. (I usually send them some greeting emails one by one according to the time of 2-3 weeks). The contents of the emails are different according to different objects. The advantages of doing this are: 1) keep in touch with the customer who has not made a deal so that he will always remember you. This is especially important when the customer is ready…

  • To do foreign trade, one must finish reading this article and avoid detours for three years

    First of all, foreign trade can only be carried out persistently, and it usually takes 2-3 years to precipitate. Whether to give up or not, and whether to stick to it, also depends on the specific situation. For example, how does the boss of the enterprise treat you? Is there a reliable manager who is taking you to know your business bit by bit? Is the enterprise’s own product competitive? If not, change to another company, do not want to do foreign trade, just change the industry. The advantage of being young is that you can make mistakes and keep trying. At the same time, what is persistence? Persistence is not to sit in an office chair for eight hours, but to find one’s own shortcomings through failures and setbacks, and to do everything possible to improve and upgrade oneself. For example, if you find that your English level and expression ability are insufficient, then you must make some changes, practice English every day, practice thinking if your expression ability is insufficient, and find some routines in some industries to…

  • Is it really difficult to do foreign trade now?

    Let me tell you a story. It is not a story either, because it is my own experience, but in my opinion it is representative. Recently, I was inquiring for a product, and it took me 12 days to push the price up, and the price was twice that of my peers. The price of the identical product, which is 1688, was 26 yuan in the domestic trade department of their company. But through Ali International Station, they were asked by the foreign trade department for an inquiry, and the price they got was 8.50 US dollars. Moreover, this foreign trade salesman did not quote FOB, and still gave me an EXW price when I specifically asked for FOB price. What’s the use? After this incident, I was feeling that the differences in individual abilities are really different. Even the difference of thinking is a long distance. 01.
